Lionel Messi has revealed that his three-year-old son, Thiago, has little interest in football.
Messi, who is widely recognised as one of the greatest players of all time, has won 29 trophies during a 12-year career with Barcelona, scoring 456 times in 535 appearances for the Spanish giants.
However, the 29-year-old has said that his natural football instincts have not yet been transferred to his young son, who has not yet taken to the sport.
“I don’t buy him many balls or force him to play with them because he doesn’t like them that much,” Messi told Telefe’s ‘Polemica en el Bar’.
Messi and his partner, Antonella Roccuzzo, have two sons – three-year-old Thiago and Mateo, who was born in 2015.
